Dan McLaughlin, Al Hrabosky and Ricky Horton back as the television voices of St. Louis Cardinals baseball in 2011.

Dan McLaughlin, Al Hrabosky and Rick Horton will return to the broadcast booth as the TV voices of St. Louis Cardinals baseball in 2011, when FOX Sports Midwest becomes the exclusive local TV home of the Cardinals.

FOX Sports Midwest will televise more than 150 games in 2011. As part of a three-man rotation, each announcer will call roughly 100 games with McLaughlin on play-by-play, Hrabosky as analyst and Horton calling games in both roles. On opening day, March 31, McLaughlin, Hrabosky and Horton will team for a three-man booth. McLaughlin is entering his 13th season of Cardinals TV broadcasts, Hrabosky his 27th year and Horton his 8th.

Parris and Eldred
On the Cardinals Live pregame and postgame shows, Jim Hayes and Pat Parris will continue as hosts and reporters. Cal Eldred, in his third season as part of FOX Sports Midwest’s on-air team, will return as pregame analyst and add postgame duties after many games. Horton and Hrabosky will also provide postgame analysis.

FOX Sports Midwest’s Emmy-winning production team led by director Tom Mee (24th season) and producer Mike Helling (17th season) also returns.

“It’s similar to putting together a baseball team. You want to have talent, experience and depth, and we feel we have that in our broadcast team as we embark on our biggest schedule of Cardinals telecasts ever,” said FOX Sports Midwest General Manager and Senior Vice President Jack Donovan.

The complete Cardinals television schedule will be announced in the coming weeks. FOX Sports Midwest is entering its 18th season as the Cardinals TV partner. In 2010, Cardinals telecasts on FOX Sports Midwest posted the highest local-market TV ratings in Major League Baseball.
